Artist's Description

In 2011 several adult Hermanns were to be seen in our garden, in Romania and we believed that this must have been the mating season.

In Spring of 2012 this baby emerged from underneath our summer house and adopted us. A couple of weeks ago it emerged from hibernation underneath the summer house and has now taken up abode, on a wooden step, at the bottom of our house steps. The step is under constant use by our 9 cats and 2 dogs but it doesn’t seem to mind :)

We have now enclosed it in an area of rocks and open grass to keep it safe while we spray our trees and cut the knee deep grass.

The Hermanns tortoise (Testudo hermanni boettgeri) is a beautiful species of tortoise. They are very hardy, stay small, and are quite friendly. Until recently the climate here was temperate but is now ‘extreme’ to say the least and the Hermann is struggling to survive.During the hibernation we had huge ammounts of snow and temperatures down to -25 and during the summer temperatures reached +42.

There are two subspecies, Western and Eastern. The Eastern Hermanns (Testudo hermanni boettgeri) get a little bigger and are much more common than the Westerns (Testudo hermanni hermanni).
